Breast Reduction

Large breasts can negatively impact a woman both physically and emotionally, causing symptoms such as chronic back pain, rashes, poor posture, low self-esteem and restricted activity.

Many women seek treatment to reduce the painful effects of their large breasts, while also improving their self-confidence and overall quality of life. Also known as reduction mammaplasty, breast reduction surgery reduces the size of large, disproportionate breasts by removing excess fat, tissue and skin for a more desirable appearance and relief of physical and emotional symptoms.

Breast Reduction Overview

During the breast reduction procedure, the surgeon makes either two circular incisions around the nipple or an anchor incision that circles the nipple and extends down the breast and along the breast crease. Fat and glandular tissue is then removed, while excess skin is tightened to produce a smaller, natural-looking breast. In some cases, the nipple and areola may need to be removed and then repositioned higher on the breast.

The results of a breast reduction are visible right away and will continue to improve as swelling and bruising subside. Scars will continue to fade over time, becoming less and less noticeable.

After your surgery

You will need to wear a special bra for several weeks following your operation. This helps to support your new smaller breasts as they heal. Most people do not find the procedure to be particularly painful, though as with any surgery, there may be a short period of mild discomfort immediately afterwards. This can normally be controlled very effectively with medication such as paracetamol. You should take 1-2 weeks off work following your operation, and allow around 6-8 weeks to fully recover.

This operation is considered a permanent solution to reduce the size and weight of overly large, heavy breasts. You should remember, however, that if you gain weight in the future, your chest is likely to increase in size again. So managing your weight is a very important part of maintaining your results in the long term.

How will it impact your life?

If you suffer from large or uneven breasts this can cause you distress, pain, or leave you feeling very self-conscious. You may have spent years feeling uncomfortable due to the excess weight and struggled to do certain activities such as high-intensity sports. Our previous patients have said how breast reduction surgery changed their entire life. They felt thinner and in proportion and could wear a wider variety of clothing, particularly when buying bras and swimwear.
